Raspberry deLight Farms - Shoshoni

Raspberry deLight Farms

Raspberry deLight Farms was established in 1999. With the prices of conventional crops being stagnant and costs of production rising, they started looking into specialty crops that the owners could raise on their farm in Hidden Valley that would make a better living for their family. After much research and prayer, they decided to raise red raspberries. The first raspberries were planted in the spring of 1999. The weather was good and they got an excellent stand that first year.
